Excellent Location - Good Food & Service

Great evening after a day at the Vatican. Looking for a reasonable eatery near to our hotel and this seemed to fit the bill. Staff were very at tentative and helpful, had the house wine and it was excellent; other wines seemed expensive seeing the Mrs doesn't really drink, but she enjoyed this... read more

We ate here about five times over a week. The building is charming and feels like ancient Rome. The food was unbelievable, the prices very reasonable by any standards, and the service was like a fine dining restaurant. The waiters were professionals. And they didn't do the tourist "service charge" scheme that some restaurants do.

We were recommended the restaurant by our hotel & I must say we were disappointed. The food was average at best. The caprese salad had one leaf of basil on it, the saltimbocca was basically boiled meat & grey in colour, & the mimosa cake was filled with artificial cream. The staff were fantastic; super friendly, engaging & gave brilliant... More

One of the best places our family has ever eaten. Nice, kitschy, but in a good way. The waiter didn't speak English, and we don't speak Italian. He got assistance from another waiter. The Lasagne was the best we've ever had. Our daughter had pasta with lobster sauce with much trepidation. Months later she still raves about it at the... More

Large portions and friendly service, but squid was a little over cooked and seating was a bit cramped

The food was ok but not hot enough. My real complaint is that all the couples and groups that came in after me were served before me. As a single female traveler, I was ignored and not chatted with like the others. However, I found this to be the case in several restaurants: this one was just the worst.

You could not get a more Roman location for this restaurant - and by Roman I mean the recycling of the ancient to bring it into the given era - at whatever long-ago time that the structure which now houses the restaurant was built, it used the wall of the Classical ancient Baths of Diocletian as a significant part of...

Well well well, what is this???? A lovely property nearly 2000 years old and very well restored. Came here in sept and now back in jan and the food and service never disappoints... Very attentive staff and the food is fantastic.. I recommend the prawn cocktail and the mixed seafood dish, a whole sea bass, king prawns, and squid.. Amazing.... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
